THE MISSION OF THE ACADEMY
The mission of Chesterton Academy of St. Louis is to raise up a generation of joyful leaders and saints, educated in the classical tradition and the truths of the Catholic faith, abounding in the skills and character requisite for success in college and professional life as well as in building up the kingdom of God, and to excel in service of family, of country, and of Christ our Lord. To that end we seek to form our students:
intellectually, by teaching them not only the great classics of Western thought from Plato to calculus, but the interrelationship of the great ideas, to learn not what to think but how to think;
in character, especially in the four cardinal virtues of Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude, and Justice which we believe are the foundations of leadership in professional life, the family, the nation, and in the service of Christ;
and spiritually, so that they may use the skills they acquire at Chesterton Academy in Faith, Hope, and Charity, to build up the Kingdom of God in this life and be with Him in everlasting happiness in the next.
In the words of G.K. Chesterton, we seek to teach our students that "there is a whole truth of things and that in knowing and speaking it we are happy."

We desire to pursue TRUTH, GOODNESS, and BEAUTY, as revealed by God, throughout the school day.
Students at Chesterton Academy of St. Louis enjoy a cohesive, content-rich education. A broad exposure to many different disciplines helps students avoid the pitfalls of specializing too early, which can lead to limited interests and narrow thinking.
